How can I find out how many licensed objects I currently have?

How is the number of licensed objects calculated?

ControlUp can monitor and manage a wide variety of resources/objects in the virtual and/or physical datacenters.

ControlUp continuously counts the total number of objects that are currently being monitored, and requires a number of licenses that adequately cover the size of the environment.

  1. Agent based Managed VMs/Computers – These are VMs and/or computers in which a ControlUp agent is running.
    1. XenApp/TS/RDSH Servers - The number of peak concurrent sessions that are running on the XenApp/TS/RDSH servers.
    2. Workstations / VDI – 1 license per windows workstation, virtual or physical (whether there is a user session or not on that VM/Computer).
    3. Other Windows Servers - 1 license per windows server OS, virtual or physical.
  2. Agentless Managed VMs/cloud instances – These are VMs and/or cloud instances that are monitored via the hypervisor API and/or XenDesktop Broker API and/or cloud connection API with no ControlUp agent running on that VM / Cloud instance.
    1. Agentless Managed VM (Windows or Linux) - 1 license per powered on agentless managed VM.
    2. Cloud Instances (Windows or Linux) - 1 license per running cloud instance.
  3. Netscaler Appliances - 1 device license per managed appliance (Note that Netscaler appliances licenses are separate from the agent based managed VMs and the agentless managed VMs)

For example, if you are monitoring a XenApp farm on which 800 user sessions are currently running and in addition you monitor 300 VDI workstations and 400 VMs as well as 5 Netscaler appliances you will need a total license of 1500 licensed objects (800 + 300 + 400) plus 5 Netscaler appliances licenses.​
